No. 10 FSU vs. Nevada, 3:30, ESPN, 820-AM

Florida State (1-0) is a heavy favorite after QB Jameis Winston and the Seminoles trounced Pitt 41-13 in the opener. Winston completed 25 of 27 passes for 356 yards and four touchdowns on the road — the most productive start by a freshman QB in school history. Winston set a school record by completing 92.6 percent of his passes, topping Danny Kanell's mark set in 1995. Winston was chosen the ACC rookie of the week, the Davey O'Brien QB of the week and the Manning Award star of the week. The Seminoles are 33-2 in their past 35 home openers.

Watch out for …: Nevada TE Brandon Wimberley has caught a pass in 42 consecutive games, the longest streak in the nation. It started Sept. 5, 2009, with a 19-yarder from Colin Kaepernick. Wimberley led the Wolf Pack (1-1) with 70 catches and 845 yards last season.
